Microsoft has done a fantastic job addressing consumers' needs when it comes to the Xbox One. They reversed the unwanted DRM, removed the connectivity requirement, and have lessened the self-publishing restrictions. You can add one more reversal to the list: every Xbox One now includes a headset.
Major Nelson revealed the included headset during an Xbox One Day One edition unboxing video in a rather casual manner (almost as if Microsoft had never said that the headset would not be bundled with the system). Following the reveal, Microsoft has confirmed to us that every Xbox One console would come with a headset, not just the Day One edition. Comparitively, every PS4 ships with a mono earbud with a microphone attached to the wire.
